lovely little temple to visit. It is beautiful. However, If you dont have much time, maybe miss this one. Preah Kahn and/or Ta Phrom are in the same vein. But it isnt far away from Preah Khan, so you can always have a quick visit

Relatively crowd free it you get there in the morning, this provides a great photo opportunity of a tree growing around the temple gate. Temple is shaded which makes for a nice experience also.

There weren't many people at the Ta Som temple when we visited (around 10am). Standing at the front entrance you could see each doorway getting smaller - interesting. Around the back there is a huge fig tree and the roots are starting to destroy the...More

So at first you think it's another temple; nice apsaras and warrior reliefs; but then you get to the end and turn around and WOW the best tree in the world. This tree has taken over a gate (a great gate in the Bayon style)...More

There are some great photo opportunities for carvings and roots here. It is kind of a small temple, but is still worth visiting for 1/2 hour. Enjoy.
